last night's game was the most dramatic baseball game i've ever seen. just as good as the legendary world series games with fisk, puckett, and carter. i'm a life-long mets fan. born and raised in bergen county, new jersey. i live about as far northeast as you can go in nj in a fairly jewish suburban area. right on the ny border, and about a half hour from the city.

yea, certainly not far from me. speaking of sopranos, i eat at a few restaurants that james gandolfini frequents, and have seen him on 3 separate occasions. unfortunately, he was very unapproachable. there's some famous mobsters that have lived very close to me. i've also been to the real Bada-Bing club a few too many times. the italian mafia has the majority of its highest ranking people in northern jersey. since his childhood, my dad has known "a guy" who "knows people" and says he can "take care of things." good to know folks like that! they can come in handy.

staying more on topic, i wonder if we have any canadians here.

ducats, i can't begin to tell you how fucking strange this is lol. you might find this hard to believe, but i reside in river vale right now and have been here for many years. river vale is so damn tiny, we don't even have our own zipcode, and they don't include us on most maps. i'm very intrigued right now. if you're not comfortable giving more details here about when you lived there, where, etc. could you shoot me an e-mail at rdenirojb87@yahoo.com.

my parents moved into (they're still there) the center (geographically speaking) of town in 1965, I left for college in 82. saying there's no post office is a little mis-leading.

indian pride all the way. you wouldn't believe what the school looks like now. do a quick google and you'll see it looks like an entirely new building.

there was some controversy regarding the mascot in '04:

from wiki
"The school's mascot is an Indian. In 2004, there was a major controversy at the school about the appropriateness of the mascot. The school took up the issue after researching high schools and colleges around the U.S. with similar nicknames that had decided to change their mascots. Many of these schools had received complaints from Native American groups about the stereotypes that the mascots reinforced. The student council also discussed rumors that New Jersey would be banning Native American-related mascots eventually, and it was decided that taking up the issue by choice rather than force was the right thing to do. After months of public debate and an official symposium in which students voiced opinions from both sides of the issue, a vote was held among the students and faculty and the motion to keep the Indian was affirmed, 67% voting in favor of keeping the mascot."

I was class of '06. I was too involved in other activities to care about the mascot thing in '04, but I certainly didn't want it to be changed.

It is pretty amazing. My folks went elsewhere in jersey. Did Mr jasper, history teacher, work there at the time? I'm sure there's a few teachers we both knew but their names are all escaping me right now.
